. that is all the time we have . >> people don't have gaps in coverage. that's the responsibility i think all of us as regulators share. >> in terms of the reinstatement, what is the incentive for insurance company if they sent out cancellation notices? what would the incentive to go back and rewrite those policies? >> the problem would be if those folks who were canceled can't get on this flawed website and are not able to find out alternative coverage, find that alternative coverage, then the insurance company that sent the cancellation notice looks like the bad guy. i don't think they want that. they also want to find a way to kind of provide a little bit of a -- close the gap a little bit so that people don't fall through the cracks here, partly because and mostly because they weren't able to go on that website when they got those cancellation letters to find out what would be available for them. >> in terms of policies that would be canceled because they didn't meet the requirements of obama care that would go into the exchange so people theoretically can access the exchange and choose t

for years. it's not a bubble. i don't think the bull cycle is over. by the way, stocks today closed at new all-time highs. the dow up another 128 points. also this evening evening, president obama wrapping up yet another pep rally, cheerleading obama care and probably defending his falsehoods. this time he's in texas. we'll get the reaction from lieutenant governor from that state and perhaps an escape hatch from obama care you need to know about. >>> chris christie gets the really big wins he was hoping for in new jersey. dick morris joining us live this evening. the "the kudlow report," we begin right now. good evening, i'm larry kudlow, this is "the kudlow report." we're live here at 7 p.m. eastern/4 p.m. pacific. the twitter ipo will start trading tomorrow. kayla joins us now. good evening. what have you got. >> it came together before we came on air for "the kudlow report." twitter pricing at $26 per share. it's above the price range, above the increased range when they said they would raise between $23 to $25 for the shares selling to the public. $26 above even that heightened range.
's one of the issues. charles krauthammer says you know what? don't believe everything you hear either. is this more spin from the white house. is he calling this basically a fraud, listen. >> they had announced this when they were in trouble at the near of october as we are going to have it fixed. there is a tape you showed yesterday of way it was supposed to be working. this is simply another example of administration that's not only can't shoot straight but can't talk straight. everything they tell you about obamacare, everyone knows is a fudge or a hedge or a guess or a prayer or an outright deception. this is another one of those, you know, that's multiple choice, a, b, c, d, or e. you choose which one you want but it's not the truth. >> accord to the "wall street journal" too. the accurate time sending information to the insurers. one of the reasons they are still deal with on healthcare dot gof. do you trust the web site with that sensitive information or is it vulnerable to hacking or vulnerable to something being inadvertently sent to the wrong pepper. >> if we taken this mone
frankly think it's the other way around. >> they don't care for us. they want to control us. they are narrowing your choices and as a result measures will be forced to find new doctors, new hospitals, new healthcare providers. nobody cares as much about you as obama and his fellow democrats. and to prove it, they are going to coerce you into living in a way they can control you. >> the house oversight committee releasing documents of so-called stress tests done on the site, the obamacare site, showing it could only handle some 1100 users to date before it launched. >> this was a failure to launch that they knew about on september 30th and went ahead anyway. >> sometimes it isn't. sometimes it is. and during those times individuals are able to get information. >> when you promise, carry out your promises. >> when people make a promise they know they can't keep, that's a lot harder to forgive, the. >> the consequences of not telling the truth to the american people i think are eventually the political accountability we are going to see in 2014. that's what scares the democrats
in washington can learn a lot. i don't know if you have noticed this, but obamacare has had a couple of hiccups. we were told we had to pass this bill in order to find out what was in it. well, here we are. -- maybe tomall can jog my memory here. one of the guys who is fighting hard for this law was ruth bailey -- braley -- bruce braley. this law is doing real harm to real people. it is taking people and disrupting their lives. millions of people are getting cancellation notices. families are seeing premiums go up. thisrowd that brought us website where they had three years to prepare, $500 million crowd thats the same is poised to take over 16% of our economy -- the health care sector. did nott obama said he know any of this stuff was going to happen. thatid that he had no idea these problems were coming. we had kathleen sebelius come and say that everything was ready to go. -- if youe issue outlaw the kind of insurance people actually have, they won't be able to keep those plans. they passed a law three years ago to outlaw the kinds of insurance that people have in their surprise that people
.c. can provide. millions of americans are buying in. if you don't succeed on your own, don't worry about it not your fault. and checks will be sent to help you out. and that philosophy zaps personal motivation and creates a mind set of victimization. if the president believes the deck is stacked in favor of the rich folks, then what chance do i have add to that mind set the rise of the machines where you and i can straight create our own little worlds spend most of our leisure time playing games or texting about trivia or writing vicious or anonymous emails. we don't even have to leave the house. we can live an entirely made up world but, of course, we do have to leave the house. that's when the trouble begins. what is society doing to encourage achievement these days? nothing at all. if you are prosperous, you are a bad person the biggest problem this country has is the way we, the people, are now behaving. and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. three other points of view on this. first up from boston former senator from massachusetts, a brand new fox news contributor scott
with runups like this, especially for companies who don't make money -- they have a great deal of promise but don't make money -- really back to larry's point about the internet boom and whether we're getting back to that. a lot of good features of the boom, included amazon.com and ebay, still with us today but many others are not. do you worry we're potentially repeating sinful behavior. >> one thing we learned from the past four or five years issue when we put our money to work, there's a certain risk tolerance everybody has, and markets are more aware of risk powers individually and institutions than ever before. the market in great part -- the pricing mechanism we have is developed and is decided upon by the investing public and the reply and demand ratio. so i have to believe that people getting into these things at these prices are happy to be there and happy to have the opportunity to participate or they would not be paying these prices. >> larry, without getting into the valuation of the company, whether it's worth in the mid-40s or whatever, it does raise another question about j
kept saying don't worry, if you don't have health insurance, you'll get taken care of in the emergency room. you can't have it both ways here. i do agree with david about the length of the -- i kept -- i was with a group of people on -- actually onset on a television talk show and we all of course had to stop and watch the thing and we all fairly experienced in politics and saying where is jay carney saying thank you very much ladies and gentlemen? i was shocked. i don't know of a press secretary that would have let this go on like this for any president and it should have been cut off. david is right. let me come to david on that. i thought it was strange, it was like he was out there as a sitting duck wanting to take the harpoons coming his way but for what purpose? because nobody came away thinking okay, that sorted that then. >> well, i -- it's hard to explain. i think he feels very vulnerable. i think he feels humiliated. i agree with howard. i think for the most part he has been an honest president and that's to his credits. what i disagree is his staff let him down. i'm sorry, b
letter in may of 2010 saying you don't have the team in place to execute this. it's going to fail. >> you know how the government works, correct? the government works by departments. everything in the bureaucracy is headed by a department. so the treasury department handles this, justice department hams that, the defense handles this. health and human services handle obama care because that's health. ceo is kathleen sebelius. no, stop, kelly. >> no, she stdoesn't know anythg about the website. why didn't he find somebody who does? >> that's the key. sebelius was in place. she couldn't do the job. absolutely. to this day, she has no clue about any of this. however, she's still there, right, with no assistants coming into sort all this out. >> let me make another point about ms. sebelius. she of course knew nothing about websites and that was completely bungled. but more than that, she is the one who put those regulations in place in june of 2010 that effectively eliminated the grandfathering the president was so relying upon. and for the president to come out today and say those democrats,
, the columnist asked him if he could quote him. buckman said no, i don't want to be quoted. he is quoted anyway. that is what he terms enact ray s in the post piece, buckman said, i'm quoting, told to make up information by higher-up at census. it was a phone conversation. i forget the but go ahead and fabricate it. the white house is dismissing the post claims that census workers deliberately faked unemployment numbers at a time the president was seeking re-election. >> obviously misleading. i think a lot of people shed a lot of credibility engaging in conspiracy theories last fall without rigged jobs numbers. >> meanwhile house republicans are taking these allegations very seriously. >> for this data came just a mere 30 days or so before a presidential election. republicans every day we were pounding on the fact that obama doesn't work. that unemployment rate couldn't get below 8%. suddenly 30 days best election it did. that begs the question did that really happen? >> yesterday house oversight committee chairman sent a letter to the census bureau demanding all documents including emails rela
proposition, mr. president, but we spent three years coming up with this other plan. we don't think this is going to work. here's the louisiana state insurance commissioner jim donelon. >> he acknowledged each state has to do what it tkpaoepls appropriate and what -- deems appropriate and what its law requires relative to implementation. we had a great dialogue, no doubt about that. but we also came away agreeing that there was a lot of difference of opinion as to whether or not we can or should do what he urged us to do last week. >> they had the meeting. they loved being in the white house, probably got a tour. in the end they have to watch out for their own backsides and their own private companies. they warned the president, what he's proposing now would amount to different rules and different policies, might result in higher premiums, not good for you and you, without underlying concerns for gaps in coverage. florida likes it. it allows people to renew their coverage. in indiana they say they will adopt the president's proposal. new york said tpho*efplt california is to announc
with the breaking details on that meeting. don't go anywhere. but first, it was a busy day on the hill today where the woman many see as the face of the obama care failures was taking heated questions from senators frustrated senators. and republicans who warned that obama care was an atomic bomb about to be dropped on america. >> i am accountable to this committee and to the american public for getting the fixes in place. and we are committed to getting healthcare.gov fixed. >> you've been misleading the american people and the president has over and over and over again. and i would much rather you come up and say, yeah, we were wrong, didn't tell the truth. you, madame secretary must make good on that promise. >> in the last five weeks, access to healthcare.gov has been a frustrating experience for far too many of these americans. it's unacceptable, i'm focused on fixing it and i'm accountable. >> you said america should hold you accountable, which is why today i repeat my request for you to resign. >> resign? we know that's not going to happen. accountability? please. people are frustrated, oba
exchanges have actually followed through and selected plans. we don't know why that many people weren't able to select plans because they decided not to, too expensive or couldn't get through because of technical problems. 975,000 says the administration made it through and did not select plans and fewer than republicans responding 106,000 number is actually inflated. he says that includes the number of people who have essentially put plans into their shopping cart. and on a day on capitol hill where we were discussing obamacare throughout the day, there were plenty of references to amazon.com. >> have you ever shopped on amazon.com? >> yes, sir. >> the amazon experience, when you put something in your shopping cart, is that considered a sale? >> >> no. >> the administration says it expected these numbers would be lower and these numbers are lower than expected said the administration going into today because of the problems with healthcare.gov. back to you, neil. >> all right, rich. thank you. >>> those numbers pale in comparison to this number. more than 5 million people cancelled due to t
to be just like the american people and enter the exchange and agree to find a way to do that. i don't care. >> it is illegal. >> stewart: did you hear her? it is illegal. doesn't stop him. well, breaking the law! i encourage you to join billions of, millions of americans who break the law every day. i was, impressive grandstanding, with delivered with panache, but let this missouri congressman tell you how not to take no hypothetical force a moment. >> if it is possible for you to go into the exchange, like all of these millions of americans that are going to the exchanges, will you commit to forego your government insurance plan you are on now and join us in the pool? >> sir, the way the law is written -- >> it is a yes or no. let's say you are wrong on that. yes or no, if you are wrong -- >> i don't want to -- >> stewart: madam secretary, ar, ar, a r, the let's say hypothetically, let's say the south won the war and you, you yourself have a terrible nut allergy would you join? >> let me try this. zero oh, let me finish! if americans spoke french and, would you then sign up for obamacar

[harmonica music] - wonk, wonk. . >> from comedy central's world news headquarters in new york, this is "the daily show" with jon stewart. [ cheers and applause ] >> >> stewart: welcome to "the daily show". my name is jon stewart. my guest tonight, my guest tonight, mark fainaru-wada, he has written a book that has rocked the nfl about concussions, wrote it with his brother, fabulous book, happy halloween. >> like one month old, it is just lying there pooping its pants and age gering anyone who who it is not related to. well, yesterday the house energy and commerce committee held the much anticipated hearing, with kathleen sebelius, let's see her try to wiggle out of accountability for this mess. >> let me say directly to the americans you deserve better. i apologize. i am accountable to you for fixing these problems. >> stewart: that was weird. i wonder if her apology will in any way affect any certain grandstand
or not they could keep their healthcare and this is suddenly discovered and blown up and said don't worry about it, these are bad apple insurerrers. you can do away with those policies. we can get you new ones. the more serious thing here is, really, this is a manifest act of incompetence on the part of the administration. but more seriously it goes to his credibility, which goes to character, which goes to integrity. last week, the president of the united states left office because he had failed to tell the truth about a major matter we are told three years mislead presidential the people people. people were told you can keep your doctors and insurance. they were not telling the truth. they were systematically deceiving the american people. i don't know how you lead a country after you have done that. >> so what -- as he sits here tonight in his second term having been reelected what difference does it make to him? >> you know, in the last -- that's when you get when i point out the arrogance. he is sitting up there in boston and you know what he is saying to himself? so what if he is asked about
became a problem, i don't know. >> because the bill was never read. the bill was like the bad sushi you buy without checking the selby date or smelling it. you go home, have it and throw up. >> you have the worst digestive system. >> i do. >> all these things happened because no one read it and no one cared. they believed in the greater good of this giant bill. it's going to save everybody. then you start biting into it and everybody is sick. >> remember when pelosi said you have to pass the bill to find out what is in it. you had to pass it for people called crazy, racist and mean saying this idea is not going to work. nothing personal,itis about the idea and the policy. now that it isn't working, it's difficult for democrats because julia mentioned the website not working. maybe they will get it to the point -- there's two things i saw today where they might not get it to the point. one was that jeffrey who is in charge of trying to fix it all reports the more people get on, the more problems they are finding. remember when you said it was like pulling the string on the sweater? the s
.o how this didn't get taken care of, i don't know.le >> because the billm was never read. the bill was like the bad sushi you buy without checking the sell by date. you go and throw up. >> you have the worstup. digestive system. all of these things happened because that one read it and no one cared. they believed in the greater b good of the giant bill coming from the print. it is going to save everybody. then you start biting into it and everybody is sick. >> remember when they said you had to pass the bill by finding out what is in it? you had to pass it to find outod those who are crazy, racist and mean and they say this idea is not going to wok. a it is about the idea and policy. now that it isn'tg working it is difficult for democrats especially because you mentioned the website not for working and maybe they willde get it to the point. two things i saw today where m they might not get to the point it is actually, woulding by though 30th which wasot the self-imposed date. he is in charge of trying to ticks it all and he -- trying to fix it all. the more he gets on, the more pr
look, here's the bottom line. i don't want to rely to which on the polls. when you look at the cbs poll where 43% say repeal the thing outright, they know there's not a majority for that right now and that the republicans are going to keep pushing to defund it, repeal it, et cetera. i think more worrisome is that the cbs poll says change this law. the president tried to stall and buy more time by doing this executive fix. it's not really clear that he has executive power to delay these cancellation notices by one year. he's got the state insurance commissioners here at the white house trying to convince them to go along with this plan but you know full well it's not just republicans any more on the hill, there are some moderate democrats as well in the senate, in the house, demanding changes to this law. to answer your question what's going to happen, i still don't think the law is going to be repealed so it's not going to be fully implemented as you asked, but are there going to be real substantive changes to this law? i think that's becoming more and more likely when you have this dem
. bill: there it is for now and what about it? jonas, good morning to you. did he go far enough? >> i don't think so. that sounded like the most passive-aggressive apology we have heard from a president in a while. bill: you say the was too cute, using a passive voice. >> he said we could have been more clear. that implies they were clear about something and they were honest about something, just not clear enough about it when in reality they were clearly dishonest. they said something over and over again were clearly that wasn't true. he can't admit that. this whole statement doesn't jive with the rest of his statement that these aren't the droids you are looking for. i don't think this will clear the air. i think they are trying to buy time. bill: because? what comes next? >> we don't know what kathleen sebelius is about to say. maybe she says she designed this website in a drunken stupor like the toronto mayor. but it sounds like they are laying the ground work for a website that won't work november 30. he's trying to give the democrats some flexibility that he met with this week. bill
, which many men don't -- you may have chosen not to have it. now the choice is not there. but employers are dropping coverage and the numbers are as toupbgd. the white house by 2014, 76% of small employers, 55% of large employers and 63% of all employers dropping employees. >> we have the whole corporate mandate delayed a year. however, they believe people are going to start losing plans at the beginning of next year. now it is estimated 157 million health care policy holders are out there at which time they are going to begin to assess what they're better off doing. corporation are going to say what makes more financial sense for us. therefore, we're going to look at the massive shedding of corporate health care plans. if you're in competition, you're a corporation that wants top talent, you'll be able to say i'll be able to give you this, this and this. one may be a top-shelf health care plan. but if you're a company which decides the bottom line is most important which might be 80% of the country according to this study put forward by the american enterprise institute, you might be i
't that the purpose? they need all the people to sign up. but the message is don't go. not many of you anyway. there are still concerns about how much the site can handle. that's a real problem for the millions of americans who have seen their insurance policies cancelled and must sign up for coverage. must sign up by december 23 in order for them and their families to have coverage in the new year. 5,500,000 people who had insurance, many of whom were happy with the insurance, got their policies cancelled thanks to this law. and now may not have insurance come 2014, thanks to the law. now they are told to stay off the website. not many at one time. on a conference call today an official with the centers for medicaid and medicare services warned there is still a lot to do over the next few days cautioning this is not a magical date. they said there will be times when the site does not perform optimally. they say there are hard drive issues, software issues, many of which need to be fixed. this from kathleen sebelius. warning earlier this week, quote, this isn't a magic turn-on switch. the exp
of execution, if you will, to stay on the old rate base. preexisting conditions don't matter because they are covered already. >> right. >> but they don't have the new mandates and so forth. but they also have the policy these people chose. and it's more affordable. these people also, if they want to do early renewal have the option to go to obamacare if they want to. nobody was prohibiting them from doing it. it was the customer's option. so i think that some people were offered the early renewal, which gets people to the end of 2014 anyway, that's where most of these insurance commissioners are going to stay. but your point that not moving people into the new pool underminds the fiscal intelling yi at this of the pool, you don't get all these healthy people moving into the new pool is a good one. you have got to get everybody into the obamacare pool in order to help make the obamacare pool sustainable. that's going to be the president's objective ultimately. >> that's a big problem. >> yes. big problem. >> we are going to be exploring that in more detail on fox business why young p
are the reason, you have to go? several republicans including me have said that, i don't think any democrats have said. but you are seeing some khinks in thagin the armor. neil: do you think this thing, as we know it, the it is dead?al out, prohibited prices for folks, a lot of folks who are switching, it is not wit ready r primetime, they will start over or democrats fighting tooth and nail? >> well, i would certainly not say it is clear that it's either dead or up for major revisions, there is a lot of rhetoric, talk and promises, but no major changes to the law, the left is still dug in over it i don't think we can declare that victory now, at all. but this law certainly based on roll out is trouble. neil: reality is, many folks are paying more, about 4 million fewer americans have coverage since before the law became the law, now reports out yesterday, continuing today, tens of millions of americans on corporate plans might be jettisoned or placed into public exchanges a year from now. that does not sound like a law that is sort of picking up steam or helping people more. >> no, it is gone fr
seen coming. >> they still don't know, it sounds like, whether or not they are going to be able to handle some sort of great amount of traffic. >> he should have just told everybody the truth from the beginning. but, you know what? if he had, they wouldn't have passed it. >> yet another delay in the obamacare rollout. hello, everyone, i'm andrea tantaros in for greta van susteren. the white house choosing the busiest travel day of the year to slide in the latest delay. did they really think that nobody would notice? karl rove joins us now. karl, the first thing i thought when i heard about this delay was, hmmm, it's not exactly a friday afternoon dump like you would call it in washington, d.c. but it's pretty darn close. what's the first thing you you thought when you heard about this latest delay? >> well, the first thing i thought of is, look, this is not the worst thing about this particular program. the shop program. they actually had a huge failure in april, in april they announced that they would not -- if you were a small business and you wanted to go buy a shop plan, for
couldn't right now >> all right. television repairman. ultimate set of tools. i can fix it. melissa: don't you feel like this is what we're getting too with obama care? everyone and their mother thinks they have the answer. give three 20 somethings, three days and amissing what they can do. everyone is talking about the guys you're about to meet. they went off built their own version of the health care website, in their spare time by the way, for fun. the kicker? it works. here in a fox business exclusive are the three men. thanks for joining us. let me start with you. why did you guys decide to do this? where did you get the idea? >> sure. we were trying to buy a health plan for ourselves. we have our own companies and looking to see if we can save money for our plans. when we went to the health exchange website, took us 45 minutes to see prices. we figured most people would lose their patience at that point. there has to be a better way to show the choices and options out there. melissa: george, is this a stunt? do you guys have, is there a political message behind this? are you trying
,000. as for the state-run exchanges that have been working better less than 80,000 signed up there. we don't know how many, if any of the people have paid for the plans as opposed to saying they want them and putting them in the shopping cart. meantime tax-pair funded health care is popular. the medicaid roles spiking by nearly 400,000 people. look at the disparity there. the biggest number of all, now more than 5 million americans who have lost their health insurance despite president obama's pledge that if you like your health care plan, you can keep it, period. now those 5 million and maybe more have roughly 30 days to find something or they will start the year without any coverage at all come january 2014. marc thiessen is a former speechwriter for president george w. bush. put the numbers from perspective for us. >> the white house bragged today that 27 million people visited health care.gov since the launch. 27,000 have signed up. that's a fail rate of .1%. kathleen sebelius had the nerve to say the marketplace is working. if they were in a real marketplace and they had that kind of sales rate
, it was a two-hour meeting in the president was joined by vice president biden and chief of staff benefit don't know and jeffrey sine who assured the skeptical senators that the health care website will be fixed by the end of november. and saying it's absolutely unacceptable in this day and age that the administration can't deliver on the promises it made to all americans because of technical problems with the website. we should be appreciating the critical benefits of the affordable care act, but there is an understandable crisis in confidence because the administration has yet to get it off the ground. >> he doesn't return my calls all the time. but i think they really want to hear from us because we are on the ground, as we know, in our community. i have delivered that frustration on a regglar basis to the white house. reporter: finger from democrats may explain why the white house left the meeting of the president's public schedule for the day. it was only after senator started lashing out with press releases that word had leaked out. senator udall said that the president needs to push ba
. the difference is obama screwed a million people. >> anyway out of this? >> i don't think so. not at this point. the web site is the least of their problems. even when they fix the web site you have kathleen sebelius and i think this is an under reported story saying today that hhs reinvites people signing up. that translates to them sitting on millions of dollars, which they are, there was one report how much they are sitting on to try to add ties to get healthy young people into the system. because they didn't have the courage to make the penalty more than the premium they can run a our money, i still don't think they are going to have people sign up. they have doctor shortage, lack of people enrolling premiums going through the roof because of adverse selection and employer mandate which is the biggest issue in 10 months. >> the question sitting there waiting senators like to hear themselves speak, the question wasn't asked who made the call to go october 1st knowing very well there were security risks and the web site wasn't ready. >> i am sweating a little bit because i went to the maratho
morning to you. it's so nice to have you with us! >> it's great to be here on "early start." i'm don lemon in for john berman. >> i'm zoraida sambolin. >>> democrats stressing out over the obama care fiasco. they are facing off with the president urging him to get the exchange system up and running and to do this swiftly. they are getting real nervous about the political fallout here and they should be. health and human service secretary kathleen sebelius saying healthcare.gov needs millions of fixes. here is more from brianna kei r keilar. >> it is wonderful to see all of you. >> reporter: texas, not exactly friendly territory for obama care. but that is where president obama went to criticize republican opposition to his signature health care reform program and promising its faulty website will soon be up and running. >> we are working overtime to get this fixed. the website is already better than it was at the beginning of october. and by the end of this month, we anticipate that it is going to be working the way it is supposed to. >> reporter: back in the hot seat again, embattled hea
what really happen. i don't think it is going to happen in my lifetime. we are learning of all of the details of fdr and fascinating and gives me confidence that history will catch up to this. too many political forces were at work and no one wanted to know the details. >> it is fascinating our children will know and how will they figure it out? >> if you read the bocks about fdr and new books about john kennedy and there is just evidence and testimony that comes forward and when people who know the kenned kens personally or have a political agenda past and historians look at just the evident carefully more detail begins to emerge. i saw a poll that said 80 percent of the members of the media believe in the lone gunmen theory and 70 percent of the american public believe in a conspiracy and most people don't realize in 1979 house select committee on assassinations concluded it was a conspiracy. and so we'll wait, we'll wait to so. at least you are not crazy fubelieve that now. >> doug, thank you so much for your perspective and all of your historical context. i know you will be
the president last week say i wasn't told. hard to believe all of this. >> i don't think anybody is surprised that somebody in advance of the failure knew that it might happen. i don't think anybody expects the president to necessarily be informed of everything. but this is his big project. and as pretty clear from what john and i wrote about in double down about the president's management style, he delegates a lot. he doesn't empower cabinet members particularly. the results of the failure to oversee this correctly from him on down at the highest levels of government has left his presidency in a really precarious position. >> well, time magazine, your magazine is saying, you know, what's left of obama's second term if it's consumed by fixing an unpopular policy from the the first? how could a white house appear so confident and incompetent at the same time? those are pretty tough words. >> and nancy gibbs, my editor wrote the cover story is a very sober person. she is not given to high high enter bow lee. i recommend people read the story not just conservatives who might be doing a snoopy da
.gov in the coming days. isn't that the purpose? they need all the people to sign up. but the message is don't go. not many of you anyway. there are still concerns about how much the site can handle. that's a real problem for the millions of americans who have seen their insurance policies cancelled and must sign up for coverage. must sign up by december 23 in order for them and their families to have coverage in the new year. 5,500,000 people who had insurance, many of whom were happy with the insurance, got their policies cancelled thanks to this law. and now may not have insurance come 2014, thanks to the law. now they are told to stay off the website. not many at one time. on a conference call today an official with the centers for medicaid and medicare services warned there is still a lot to do over the next few days cautioning this is not a magical date. they said there will be times when the site does not perform optimally. they say there are hard drive issues, software issues, many of which need to be fixed. this from kathleen sebelius. warning earlier this week, quote, this isn't a magic

these problems. well he should have known. frankly, i don't believe for a moment that he didn't know. no less than nbc indicated that the president knew three years ago that everything he was saying at the podium, if you like your health insurance you can keep it. he knew that wasn't true. if he had explained that more people would lose their insurance than would keep it and that this program will put more people on medicaid than on private insurance, this thing would never have passed. i think a lot of democrats are going to be scrambling for the exits between now and election time next year. >> governor, because many people are discovering that the rollout is plagued with dysfunction, having an adverse impact in their own immediate lives, can the president get away with simply saying that he didn't know about the potential problems with the rollout ahead of time? i know you say you don't believe he didn't know. as he continues to say that he didn't know or wasn't aware about these issues, what does it do to his credibility? because this is a kind of answer he's been giving about issues like
that passed. change something the people don't want. the next step in this drama, if you will, is up to the american people. i have done what i can for the last three years to either try to deflect or improve or not damage people so badly with this thing b , but honestly you remember in 1988 when the catastrophic healthcare plan was revealed after the people rose up as one and said you have to get rid of this thing? that is the type of citizen involvement that is going to be required to reverse course on what you directly point out is a massive government over reach. >> let's move on to the legislation itself. the european idea is healthcare isn't right. what do you say to these american politicians making the same point? >>> oo it is a right and not a privilege. >> it is a right, not a privilege. >> not a privilege for a fortunate fubu a right for all of us to enjoy. >> it's a right government should give it to people? >> i refer to look at it more as a responsibility. i recognized it wasn't my responsibility to provide food, housing and healthcare for my familiar -- it was my respo
are so great. tacloban is a city of some 200,000 people. we don't yet, piers, have an accurate count of how many people lost their lives, how many are wounded and in need of immediate assistance, accurate number, we just simply don't have them. and that gives you a sense, we're now into the fourth day since the storm hit and it gives you a sense of how tough the communications are for the philippine government, they're hoping to get the airport running on a 24-hour basis, hoping to get relief out here. that is one of the problems, piers, there were no lights. it is very difficult to fly in there in the type of large-scale operations that are needed. hopefully that will start to move again, with the weather system moving in, in the next six hours that will definitely cause a crimp in the next several hours. we'll continue to follow it in the next several days, though, peers. >>> and obviously, we know the military is sending in aid, the chinese, as well, lots of countries helping now. but how restrictive is it for the moment to get the aid where it is needed, given the current horrend
, if corporations can decide willy-nilly they don't want to abide by this, religious organizations are probably seen in a different light, this thing won't really have any teeth by the time -- if it gets passed. it won't be effective. i'll read a quote from the "huffington post." the catholic school teacher who has done a great job for years could still be fired under enda if the school's principals discover she's a lesbian. we don't wantened, a as how far we've come but view it as a sign of how much further we need to go. what do you make of that? >> they are definitely creating unique carve-outs in civil rights law that are not applied in other areas. supporters do have to walk a fine line trying to bring republicans in, the senate and house floor and not creating a useless piece of legislation that really doesn't create any kind of enforceable mechanism to avoid discrimination. >> i just think, steve, this is a year in the last three months the pope in september came out and said, who am i to judge a gay person of goodwill who seeks the lord. if the pope can say that, why does it remain so diffic
are dropping out. they don't want anything to do with obamacare. apple, amazon, netflix, facebook, twitter they're all in the news today and we are covering it. "varney & company" is about to begin. when we made our commitment to the gulf, bp had two big goals: help the gulf recover and learn from what happened so we could be a better, safer energy company. i can tell you - safety is at the heart of everything we do. we've added cutting-edge technology, like a new deepwater well cap and a state-of-the-art monitoring center, whe experts watch over all drilling activity twenty-four-seven. and we're sharing what we've learned, so we can all produce energy more safely. our commitment has never been stronger. >> look at that. all right, here is the big story, let me tell you it's another obamacare bombshell. huge implications is the reporting from forbes. not only did the administration know that 10 million people would lose their private plans, it knew that modifications to the law would cause them to lose their employer provided plans and the numbers are staggering. by november of 2014, 66% of sm
